But while that is that, something unwarranted has popped up and we are not sure how we feel about it. Industry veteran and lyricist Javed Akhtar took to Twitter and reacted to a poster that had his name because-hear this-he has not written any songs for the film.

"We bought the copyright of the song before using it in our film". Have not written any songs for it!

The trailer for 'PM Narendra Modi' was launched at a multiplex in Mumbai by the film's cast and crew. "We have also sent warning letters to the producers, distributors, administrators and filmmakers". In a tweet posted in Hindi, Sameer wrote, "Mujhe hairat hai apana naam pm narendra Modi film me dekh karr, Maine aisi kisi film me koi gaana nahi likha hai".

Many claimed that the trailer that was shown to the media earlier this week was different from what is now available on YouTube for public viewing.

"Without speaking much about the trailer, Ssingh said: "...people will have to watch the film".

The movie, starring Vivek Oberai, is set to release on April 12 and is clearly aimed at influencing the upcoming elections in India with the heroic portrayal of Modi. "One person I spoke to said he would get back to me in 10 minutes but he hasn't responded since then", he said, adding that it could have been a mistake on part of the production team as they are responsible for drafting the credits in a film.
